It’s surprising that a game with two good teams is in the early window of games but hey — That’s how it goes sometimes. We’ll have the Cincinnati Bengals and Kansas City Chiefs going head-to-head at 1:00 EST and there’s a lot on the line for both teams.
If the Bengals win this game, they’re the champs of the AFC North for the first time since 2015.
If the Chiefs win this game AND the Titans lose to the Dolphins, they’ll clinch home-field advantage in the playoffs for the fourth straight year.
So, yeah… There’s a lot at stake for both of these squads!
Who is on the call for Bengals vs Chiefs?
With such a good game, it’s no wonder that Cincinnati gets the best announcing team for their Week 17 matchup. It’ll be the CBS crew of Jim Nantz, Tony Romo, and Tracy Wolfson for Bengals-Chiefs and no one should be surprised that this is the team picked to call this game.
Cincinnati has had the team of Nantz/Romo/Wolfson one other time this season and it did not go well. That was the infamous loss to Cleveland in Week 9 where the game was basically over by halftime.
Hopefully, this game with the Nantz/Romo/Wolfson in the broadcast booth and on the sideline goes better than that awful Week 9 loss to the Browns where the good guys were never really in the game.
Bengals fans should get used to this broadcast team calling their games, especially if this season ends with a playoff berth. Yes, they’re probably on this game because the Chiefs are in it (they’ve called a lot of Chiefs games this season) but Bengals-Chiefs is one of the — if not THE — best games on the schedule this week.
